Waiting on WednesdayWaiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we spotlight an upcoming book release we're especially looking forward to!
Here's what I'm eagerly awaiting this week:
A Gathering of Shadows by V.E.SchwabTHIS BOOK^^ I NEED IT. BAD! First of all, let's take a moment to appreciate glorious the cover art. I'm in love with how it matches the first book but also comes off as totally unique at the same time. I also LOVE that it has Lila front and center this time around. My awesome little pirate thief front and center, YES PLEASE. Moving on to the blurb, well let's be honest: it totally kills me - I'm literally wishing I could magically have it in my hands right this second - especially with book 1 being so fresh in my mind. I already miss
A Darker Shade of Magic #2
Expected Publication: February 23rd 2016 by Tor
Four months have passed since the shadow stone fell into Kell’s possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Rhy was wounded and the Dane twins fell, and the stone was cast with Holland’s dying body through the rift, and into Black London.
In many ways, things have almost returned to normal, though Rhy is more sober, and Kell is now plagued by his guilt. Restless, and having given up smuggling, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks like she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games—an extravagant international competition of magic, meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries—a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port.
But while Red London is caught up in the pageantry and thrills of the Games, another London is coming back to life, and those who were thought to be forever gone have returned. After all, a shadow that was gone in the night reappears in the morning, and so it seems Black London has risen again—meaning that another London must fall.
What are you all waiting on?
